Dear Clark Dads,

It's time for our next All Pro Dad meeting On April 3rd (next Wednesday) in Clark Library from 7:30 - 8:15 am. The topic is Perseverance. This will be our last All Pro Dad meeting for this academic year. For those who have not attended an All Pro Dad meeting, here are some details about the program:

All Pro Dad meets are breakfast meetings for dads and their kid(s) taking place in the school library. Dad and child participate and discuss a specific character building topic relevant to the child. Our topic this month is Perseverance. Enjoy a light breakfast while bonding with your child working together on discussions, games, exercises related to the topic. Dads or moms, sons or daughters are welcome! Students must be accompanied by a parent for the program.

Let's do this together....

Nurse's Corner


Attention 6th Grade Parents:

Over the next several weeks, Nurse Thornton will be going through shot records and if any immunization is found to be missing, this letter will be mailed home. You can email, fax or drop off an updated copy of your student’s shot record to the school at any time. The updated shot record is not due until schedule pickup in the fall. Please note that your student will not be able to pick up their fall schedule without an updated shot record on file and your student will not be allowed to attend school without an updated shot record on file.

Please let Nurse Thornton know if you have any questions at thorntok@friscoisd.org or 469-633-4608. Her fax number is 469-633-4628.



Flu Notification:

Parents, please let the school know if your student has been diagnosed with the flu and what type. You can email the data clerk peterssons@friscoisd.org or the nurse thorntok@friscoisd.org with the information. Please make sure the doctor’s note states all dates your student has missed or will miss. The doctor’s office can also fax the note to 469-633-4650.
